1000-Mile Doublehanded Nordsee
« on: December 06, 2006, 18:30:33 PM »
Leo hat mich gebeten, diesen "Veranstaltungshinweis" hier hinein zu setzen.

Netherlands - Bergen - Shetland - Bergen race The 1000-Mile Doublehanded is perhaps the most challenging race of the northernmost North Sea. This rugged competition combines long-distant sailing with serious competitive racing. If you love a good challenge - and want a great excuse for a wild vacation - register now.

The 1000-Mile Doublehanded consists of three legs between Holland (IJmuiden), Norway (Bergen) and the Shetland Islands (Lerwick) - and finishes in Bergen.

Leg 1         IJmuiden - Bergen   (600 mi - 10 June 2007)
Leg 2         Bergen - Lerwick   (200 mi - 20 June 2007)
Leg 3         Lerwick - Bergen   (200 mi - 25 June 2007)

The two shorter legs are also part of the Shetland-Bergen Races 2007, so prizes will be awarded in both Lerwick and Bergen. The winner of the 1000-Mile Doublehanded will be announced at the awards ceremony in Autumn 2007.

Who can participate?
All experienced sailors seeking serious short-handed sailing competition. Your boat must be 27 ft LOA or more, and manned by two people. At least one crewmember must complete the entire race. The only exception is the Open650 class, which will be held if sufficient registrations are received. To qualify, a 175-mile non-stop cruise in open sea must be made.

Klingt interessant... und Minis sind ja zugelassen!

Also, wer Lust hat, nur zu!
